Quote from shade449
How did you guys find out your IQ's? Do your schools give it out or did you take it somewhere on your own?

school boards are the main way but remember iq can deviate more then 20 points depending on many factors
ie the more tests you take the less accurate it becomes...and depending on if you have a good or bad day i belive it can swing 20 points either way
90 is the baseline for mild retardation
100-110 is average
150or 155 is genius level...and if you get tested at the right places scholorships are actualy available if you do well

but then again asking someones iq over the internet is akin to asking someone how good they are in bed ....on a dating site

you almost always get a lie

Actually "favourite" is a British/Aussie/etc. way of spelling it, same with "colour". So it's not really wrong...

Race: Hispanic (mix of Mexican/Spanish/Israelite/Chinese)
Main Personality Traits: Eccentric, picky, frugal
IQ: At the top percentile of my class( but my class is small), so generally smart according to that system. My best friends are smart too though... In reality I doubt I'm smart, since my school is tiny, so I fear going to college and being behind others.
Otaku or not: Not certain
Favourite food: Chicken Parmesan *
Height: 5'2
Eye Color: brown
Hair Color: dark dark brown with a red tint

Favourite English Cartoon: Adventures of Billy and Mandy *
Most Visited Website:tie between crunchyroll and mangatraders
Favourite Actress: Jessica Alba
Favourite Actor: Morgan Freeman
How many Siblings: 3; 2 sisters, 1 brother
*qualifies at the moment

By picky, I meant foodwise. eek I don't really eat vegetables, or fruit; I don't eat spicy, or any condiments. I don't like beans, dips, or sauces. I don't like spending money on things like overpriced clothing, jewelry, or purses. I don't like buying cheaply made things that will be uncomfortable either.I lose things often, so I perfer to get things that don't matter if I lose them (I lost my glasses recently, and they were expensive, and that was depressing).

edit: Random info, the guy who plays Hiro in the Heroes show has an IQ of 187, I believe. >.o If that's not sexy, I don't know what is.

Edit #2: Wow, just noticed that a good chunk of people who read manga are geniuses. There is your answer for who reads manga. People who change the world, and invent problems to global warming, that's who. And save dolphins or something.
-self esteem level +1-
